Halloween POP'N'CUTE flyer shoot

Back in June, Junnyan asked me to do a shoot for the promotional flyers for the POP'N'CUTE (a Harajuku fashion party) Halloween event.  

I went for a sort of demon/vampire look: 

After shooting for a couple of hours we ate ramen and took purikura~
 Delicious yuzu ramen

FRUiTS snap

In about April or May, I was street snapped by FRUiTS magazine in Harajuku. I was really surprised! My photo got printed, too! You can find it in issue 204~

Monsters University jacket: eBay
Dress, body harness, cross necklace: GLAVIL by tutuHA
Choker: Creepyyeha
Garters: Made by me
Boots: YOSUKE
Ball-joint doll tights: Lockshop
Eyeball hair bows: Kreepsville 666

Coincidentally, this happened on the day I went to KERA's Marui Annex snap event, where they take everyone's photo, then choose some to print in the magazine. I actually ended up being printed in KERA too, which I totally didn't expect!

Tokyo Decadance: Rolly special

There's a club night I like a lot that happens about once a month in Tokyo, called Tokyo Decadance. I'm not quite sure how to describe it, but it's a lot of fun. Every time there's usually a different dress theme, and as there's a slight discount on the entry fee if you follow the theme (or just generally dress up), people really go all out.

Back in May, Rolly (actor who played the crazy singing guy in the film Suicide Circle) was a guest performer, and as Rolly sometimes plays Frank N. Furter in Rocky Horror Show performances, there was also a small performance of some Rocky Horror songs by the Decadance team. I don't think there was an official dress theme this time, but most people went with Rocky Horror-inspired (and some full-on cosplays).

Although I had Dr. Furter in mind whilst getting ready, it didn't quite show in my outfit haha:

Top: Qutie Frash

Before going, Chi and I took purikura, of course. 

She's an absolute pro at decorating these.

Ghost Izakaya

Some time in July, Maria and I went to a ghost-themed izakaya called Yuurei in Kichijoji.

 The entrance



Despite the horror theme, we found the atmosphere to be really relaxing somehow.


 To call the staff, you had to place this hand between the windows and ring a bell.


Most of the food was just normal izakaya food with spooky names, but we did manage to find some eyeball cheese things. The food and drinks were a little more expensive than normal izakayas, but still very affordable, and as there's no cover charge, I'd definitely say it's worth it. 

 I got to have a funeral! They dressed me in some kind of death outfit, then said some prayers and threw flowers on me while I lay in a coffin and laughed my head off. 


At the end they closed the lid, and even the window in it too. It's a good thing I'm not claustrophobic! 

I'd strongly recommend this place to any fans of Japanese horror movies/folklore, or anyone who likes theme restaurants/bars.

Sumidagawa Fireworks Festival - 26/07/2014

Every summer there's a huge fireworks display by The Sumida River in Tokyo, so a group of us decided to go and watch them in yukatas. I'd never worn a yukata before, so Maria dressed me in one of hers. c: The day was a lot of fun! We got there super early (about 2pm?) to get a good space to sit, and spent the afternoon drinking alcohol and eating delicious festival foods. 


Shaved ice

3pm alcohol start


At some point Maria and I went for a walk and found a maneki neko shrine:




The fireworks display itself was amazing! I really wasn't expecting anything anywhere near as good considering that you didn't have to pay to watch it. None of the photos I took do it any justice, but here are a few anyway:

 This one looked like the Skytree was exploding haha
